WASHINGTON (CNN) - Brutal winter storms have caused the flowers to pop up later than usual, but they're still here in time for the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade this weekend.

The National Cherry Blossom Festival commemorates the 102nd anniversary of Japan's gift of the trees to the United States.

The event attracts more than a million people from across the country and abroad.
